These may look like an average chocolate chip bun, but trust me when I say they are anything but ordinary! I love it, I love the easy and healthy cupcake recipes, but I lacked a good chocolate cupcake recipe.

These chocolate and almond butter muffins have fulfilled all my dreams of healthy muffins. They are light, moist and full of healthy fats and proteins. I don't feel bad giving my kids one of these for chocolate breakfast and everything!

I had a hard time deciding what to call these muffins because they are grain-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, and paleo. That would be a pretty long title as healthy as chocolate muffins!

I like to keep my freezer well stocked with things like homemade waffles and healthy muffins for easy snacks and breakfasts.

I also love these cupcakes because they are so easy to make! They're made with easy-to-find ingredients and only take 1 bowl and 30 minutes to make. I'm definitely one to get the occasional (or frequent!) Chocolate cravings and these cupcakes hit the spot. I hope you love them as much as we do!
